Laurie was appointed to the role of Executive Director in 2014. She is no stranger to the organization or the industry, having spent the last twenty three years in various staff roles at NOTO. Beginning as the bookkeeper, she soon took on additional responsibilities and has been the Membership Services Manager for the last several years. In this role she has been the voice and face of NOTO to our members.
Laurie takes great pride in her work. She is dedicated to the needs and concerns of tourism operators across the province and works hard at developing strong and lasting relationships within the industry and government. She is committed to working with the Board, staff and members to shape NOTO into a strong united voice and community.
